Welcome to Sci-Tech Laboratories –
It Pays to Measure

In today’s fast moving business environment evidence-based decision making is essential to good management. But that is by no means the only reason that it pays to measure – proving compliance with regulatory requirements, demonstrating that customers’ quality expectations have been met and checking internal performance to pave the way for continuous improvement, are equally important.

Sci-Tech Laboratories has the ability to provide high quality microbiological and serological analytical testing services across all aspects of poultry (including bird production and routine hatchery and factory and hygiene monitoring) and porcine production. The services offered include the design and implementation of audit and testing schedules to satisfy all industry codes.

The comprehensive microbiological testing service incorporates salmonella investigation under Defra statutory instruments such as the Animal Bi-Products Orders, the Poultry Health Scheme the Control of Salmonella - Broilers 2009 and the Control of Salmonella - Poultry 2007. Full serological testing includes the mycoplasma and salmonella rapid plate testing required by the Poultry Health Scheme.

In addition Sci-Tech Laboratories offers an increasing range of porcine diagnostic tests such as PRRS and APP testing for herd monitoring purposes and is UKAS accredited for water microbiology testing.

Further developments have also added a range of Molecular Diagnostic Testing (Real Time PCR) capabilities to the portfolio.

All this makes Sci-Tech Laboratories the UK’s foremost independent and internationally accredited analytical laboratory specialising in the UK poultry sector.
